A ten-bedroom terraced house, nestled on Ennismore Gardens – one of London’s most prestigious streets in Knightsbridge – has reportedly gone up for sale. According to Evening Standard, this secretly stylish and majestic residential property has been put on the market for a whopping 23.95 million.
Standing on 10,000sq ft of land, the trophy home features a deceptively innocuous stucco-fronted exterior. It spreads over seven floors and comprises ten opulent bedrooms, five magnificent reception halls, and ten well-furnished bathrooms.
Whilst equipped with all modern amenities, this magnificent property seamlessly blends in with its mid-19th-century garden square surroundings. Behind its elegant period facade lies a refurbished mansion that underwent an extensive renovation in 2014. The refurbishment project included digging below the garden in order to build a lavish leisure suite with a private cinema, gym, and exercise pool.
The residence comprises a double basement built before the basement size limit was enforced in Kensington and Chelsea. Additionally, an underground passage was built that links the main house with the mews house situated across the picturesque garden. The smaller house is accessible by a convenient internal door. This leads visitors from the main house’s expansive 9-metre-long kitchen to the ground-floor reception room of the mews.
Double elevators connect the main house and principal rooms to the ancillary accommodation, for easy movement throughout the house. The main house includes eight bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms and two stately 12.4mx6m reception rooms. The high ceiling of the grand reception rooms and the attached balcony overlooking the communal gardens add to the appeal of the main house. Furthermore, the mews house provides an opportunity for guest accommodation or staff quarters, improving the versatility and functionality of this unique property even more.
The gym, double basement, spacious reception rooms with high ceilings, and the versatile usability of the mews house provide the property with its unique grandeur whilst also offering a seamless living experience. The strategic location, expansive living spaces, and extensive renovation are claimed to make this stupendous property a “rare find” in the current real estate landscape.
The street it’s located on, Ennismore Gardens, is located just to the south of Hyde Park. It has long been sought after by luminaries of the silver screen like Michael Caine and Ava Gardner. Thus, homes lining Ennismore Gardens get snapped up by uber-rich local and international investors looking to maximise their property portfolio. For example, in 2007, an eight-bedroom residence was sold for a staggering 15.25m – the highest-value deal ever cracked in Ennismore Gardens.
With this prestigious street in Knightsbridge witnessing a massive influx of elites preferring contemporary interior designs, the demand for luxury interior studios such as Accouter is getting a push. By blurring the line between interior architecture and design, an expert luxury interior design service can turn a space into an impeccable timeless environment. Meanwhile, with or without any interior furnishings, the luxury house in Knightsbridge has been marked as a sight to behold and is expected to be sold soon.
